Sooooooo…… My truck has had battery problems. About twice a year, it has increasing trouble starting, until a week or two later when it just conks out completely. I understand why it happens – I start it up cold, drive thirteen blocks, let it sit all day, then repeat the process to go home. I […]

Ralph went In for his eye maintenance today. I took him to school again until the vet opened, and I just have to say that he is the best cat ever. The kids were mauling him with love and he just took it in stride. (Go to facebook.com/stjohncdc for a couple of photos.) I zipped […]

Turn on the pressure, people.

Lloyd needs a haircut. He needs your encouragement to get one. Go. (Note: this photo is not retouched.) Oh, speaking of hair, Ralph was a little winky today. Sure enough, he has a few more stray (shocking long) hairs a-growin’ on his eyeball. I’m not surprised, as I expected new ones would develop as time […]
